the speech today. romney talked about the need for new leadership and bold leadership to bring a resolution to the israel/palestine situation. when the cameras were not rolling a few months ago when millions weren't listening or watching, romney had a different take on the exact same subject. i'd like to play that right now. >> these are problems that are very hard to solve. i look at the policy for political purposes committed to the destruction and elimination of israel, and he's throwing the issues. i say there's just to way. what you do is you move things along the best wake you can, you hope for a degree of stability but you recognize it's going to remain unsolved. >> so i'm sorry. it gets hard to take this stuff seriously at a certain point with when the guy gives a major foreign policy speech and bash obama for not bringing resolution to this program as president when he has gone in front of a group of people and basically said the best you could do as president is kick the can down the road. i have a hard time taking that seriously. >> unfortunately, he can't say that in the speech.
hours ago mitt romney took a foreign policy swipe in what will be billed as a big speech. >> the president has failed to offer the tangible support that our partners want and need. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. the greater tragedy of it all is we're missing a historic opportunity to win new friends who share our values in the middle east, friends fighting for their own futures against the same violent extremists and evil tyrants and angry mobs that seek to harm up. >> right now the president is speaking at the national headquarters of the united farm workers union in california. does any of this really matter? do the polls matter? do ads, nearly a billion dollars worth matter? do all the campaign appearances tell the tale? we asked that with our team plus a friend of the show dr. john nan allen from politico. >> prish the intro. >> we have 29 days to go, and we know almost nobody decides based on foreign policy. does romney's foreign policy speech matter? does fo
of our military commanders. >> to me that sounds like mitt romney is suggesting he'll do exactly what the president is doing. do you have a different interpretation? >> i didn't. i tried to look at the speech through the eyes of a combat soldier. the most interesting thing he said, i thought, was ha hope is not a strategy, but rhetoric isn't either. it was a gigantic missed opportunity to outline really finite fundamental and specific strategies for dealing with the problems he so ably described. in afghanistan, for example, there is a real mess there in the sense that negotiations clearly aren't going to happen. we're not training the afghans fast enough to really pick up after 2014 when we are supposed to have withdrawn combat troops. there is no plan for what happens after december 2014 and the whole thing has fallen into a messy, bloody stalemate. i was looking to romney to provide some glimmer of a way out of that. whether it was endorsing fast track negotiations, whatever it was. i was looking for a plan. i didn't find it there or other things he mentioned. the one specific thin
in my copy of the speech the moments when it was a period where mitt romney might say something substantive but i found it lacking. i will put the leaders of iran on notice that the u.s. and our friends and allies will prevent e them from acquiring nuclear weapons, i will deepen critical cooperation with partners in the gulf. not a lot here that isn't stuff that's already been floated. these are positions the president, i think would agree should be taken. >> if you are going to unveil ab address at this point you better have the goods. never mind next week's foreign policy debate with the president. this mitt romney needs to debate the old mitt romney as well. on each of these things he's taken the opposite position. there's an extended criticism of the president's take on syria, for instance. yet this is the same mitt romney who also said getting involved with libya would be mission creep. he opposed that in one country and now proposes it somewhere else. the point of consistent for him is israel. to pa are a phrase joe biden every foreign policy sentence has a noun, verb and
romney delivers what his campaign is calling a major foreign policy speech in virginia. yesterday, he was in florida, a key swing state. late their week, the running mates duke it out in their debate. joe biden and paul ryan face off in the only vice presidential debate in kentucky. and a new poll by the university of denver, where last week's presidential debate was held, gives president obama a slight edge over mitt romney in colorado, a key swing state. 47% to 43%. paul steinhauser joins us live now. what do you make of all this? >> reporter: the new poll numbers. those are pretty much in line, john, with what we saw prior to the debate. other polls conducted in colorado, as you mentioned, a key battleground state, where the president had a slight edge, same story. this new university of denver poll. among independents, the president has a double-digit lead. when are we going to see more polls? you're going to see a bunch over the next 48 hours the next couple of days leading up to the vice presidential debate. a bunch of major organizations, including cnn, are in the field right n
as a numbers guy, the house budget chairman. >> mitt romney will deliver a big foreign policy speech this morning. you have excerpts for us i understand. >> the campaign put them out a few hours ago. virginia military institute, a big foreign policy speech what they're togethuting. one of the things that mitt romney will say -- similar language to what we've heard from mitt romney on the campaign trail criticizing the president he says not being muscular enough for defending the ney and its allies. >> paul steinhauser, live in washington, d.c., thank you. >>> coming up at half past the hour live to congresswoman diane black, a tennessee republican and surrogate for mitt romney's campaign who works with paul ryan on the budget committee. a reminder, the only vice presidential debate of the 2012 campaign, takes place this thursday. you can watch it live at 7:00 eastern on cnn. and always on cnn.com. >> the only up with. you will not want to miss it. >> seven minutes after the hour. aaa says the national price for gallon of regular unleaded $3.82. governor jerry brown taking emergency m
said, memorably, sounded like a concession speech. you know, i'm not a perfect man, i've made mistakes, i'm sure mitt romney would say i've made mistakes how is that the opening line of your two-minute closer? >> yeah. >> that he carried into the closing statement. i don't think that -- i think that was lacking in the rest of the performance for the president. >> the other thing i noted about romney, not just his affect, because as tough as he was, he was polite and smiling, if you're looking at it with the sound turned off, one man looked happy and smiling and almost reagan-like in his demeanor, and the other man looked tense and not happy to be there, reluctant to be there. romney used words talked about empathy, suffering, caring, he cited examples, the teacher in las vegas. that really seemed to be trying to fix the 47% problem. >> i agree with that. he didn't get asked the 47% problem but his whole performance was an attempt to answer it in a certain way. he did talk about empathy and smartly in ohio and in missouri and in a lot of -- >> nevada. >> and other states and nevada and
points that candidates made. gutfeld was assigned governor romney and mcguirk president obama. >> i should have watched the debate. rerun of dawson's creek so i missed the next thing. obama let mitt win so people could stop talking about that 2007 speech it was genius. joke. how could this be a surprise? you have a successful businessman who wipes the floor with a grad student. you have guy who knows jobs and a guy who knows jay-z. a guy who had a career. a guy who had a canine. there is no comparison and the most important thing is, this is what nobody is talking about. mitt had to win big. he couldn't just win. if he had just won, the press wouldn't would have given it to obama. he had to disseminate obama in order to just to get a victory. >> bill: how did he do it gutfeld. >> eye contact. eye contact. >> bill: just eye contact? it'saser stare? >> yes. it seemed that mitt was extremely open and confident about himself strictly through eye contact. he he knew his facts as a businessman he was prepared. and he is probably going to pitch this like this over and over again. >> bill:
